The photos are great as always! Looks like it was a fun trip. I always enjoy your blog updates. It "takes" me places I wouldn't be able to go otherwise.

Jason...We about to see a name change here? :)

You going native up there? Nice pics! How are things going? We don't hear from you much these days.

I would really like to get back up there again sometime. Its beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Congrats! Now lets scuff up that camo a bit...It looks too new. :)

I've been really busy working on finishing my dissertation. Some friends invited me along for this bear hunt in Prince William Sound though and I couldn't pass it up. It was an awesome trip.

Check out the blog section of the site (main page) for some nice pictures from the other days of the hunt.

Great stuff Jason! Awesome! You are sure going to be one spoiled puppy when they chase you out of there. Flatland just isn't going to cut it anymore.

You been keeping a bird list at all? I'm sure that if you were you could knock off some birds most folks would never have a chance to see.

I was thinking about tying you up a muddler for those sculpins until I saw that big one...This old dry-fly guy just doesn't have a hook big enough for it. :)

I said to my wife, "We should visit Alaska." and showed her your pics and she said, "OK"...Hmmmm.

There may be a book...maybe a diary in your future for all that you have been able to do up there. How long has it been now? You have been up there for some time!

Did you see my PA Trip post...We fished high and low and couldn't find Gonzo...:)

One of my hunting partners kept a bird list from this trip, I'll ask him for it.

Didn't see that yet... I haven't kept up on reading the forum unfortunately.

Tony, Eric, Bruce, and Louis...Spoiled me this spring and I fished 6 streams with them in 11 days. Shawny stopped by to say hello when we were fishing Spring Creek...Also fished The Little J,Penn's Creek, the Letort, Yellow Breeches, and Big Spring.

Great time!
